FLIR Systems Inc.’s stock climbed 6.1 percent after Raymond James & Associates Inc. raised its rating on the Oregon company. The maker of night-vision cameras and thermal-imaging and threat-detection systems was lifted to “strong buy” from “market perform” by analyst Brian Gesuale. He cited solid orders in FLIR’s government division, despite recent cuts in spending by the US government.
